Vladimir Ivanovich Voronkov, Under-Secretary for United Nations Counter-Terrorism Office, has stressed that Qatar is one of the major financers of the UN Counter-Terrorism Office .

He pointed out that Qatar provides a strong support to this office and there is close and active cooperation with Qatar in enhancing the efforts of combating violent extremism. Qatar will also host World FIFA Cup 2022, which would in turn participate towards pushing forward the counter-terrorism activities.
